Thanks guys, yeah i sculpted the log out of apoxie sculpt. The planks are coffee stirrers that have been gouged with an exacto blade.

The rope is fuse wire twined together.

Ive done some more on him and hes coming along. Just subtle things like his face, flasks and gems.





anyhoo. i put some Vallejo still water on the moss and gems to make them gleam and had the urge to paint...

so i knocked out this one at the same time. Kept it neat and simple to try to see if can do a paintjob im happy with, but not spend ages on it. Took me about 6 hours. It needs basing and some oxidation on the sword handle. Im sure you could highlight further, but i want to knock out all my pirates so i can actually have some mates around for a game. So this is the standard i would like them to be.






Thanks for looking

Great work on the pirate as well, AM :icon_smile:  I'll risk looking stupid and ask: who makes this mini?

Looking great !!!  The purple is very similar to the way Squigface did his on his Skellies and has the metallic look.   Very nicely done  :clap2:

I hate to be the one to point this out, but with a mouth that wide, she does look a bit, well, Canadian, in a South Park-way  :icon_eek:

And she is certainly an athletic young lady! :icon_mrgreen:

These are awesome.

Did you sculpt that mask?  I have that mini, I think, the slaanesh champion, but I think he/she comes with a ponytail.

Yay coffee sticks!  Or, Batons a Cafe, as the box reads.  I use them extensively for bases!

Is the pirate from Pirates of the Dragonspine Sea 2, or did you get her singly?  I have both Dragonspine sets.  Now to paint them!! You did a great job on her.  I'm particularly impressed with the precision freehand.  Are you going to base her, or leave her on that tiny plank base?  It will be a witch* to blend it into a usefully-sized base.  And all the Dragonspine minis are based that way.  Why oh why don't they go with pegged bases??

Amazing work!  should have posted two threads so that we can comment on each individually...

You do still have access to the smiley list :icon_wink: That's what I use when posting, it makes it easier for me to find them.
